TTY Mode
A TTY (teletypewriter, also known as a TDD or Text Telephone) is a telecommunications device
that allows people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or who have speech or language disabilities,
to communicate by telephone.
Your phone is compatible with select TTY devices. Please check with the manufacturer of your
TTY device to ensure that it supports digital wireless transmission. Your phone and TTY device
will connect using a special cable that plugs into your phone’s headset jack. If this cable was not
provided with your TTY device, contact your TTY device manufacturer to purchase the
connector cable.
To turn TTY Mode on or off:
1. From the Home screen, tap Phone >
> Call settings > TTY mode.

Warning:
911 Emergency Calling
It is recommended that TTY users make emergency calls by other means,
including Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS), analog cellular, and
landline communications. Wireless TTY calls to 911 may be corrupted when
received by public safety answering points (PSAPs), rendering some
communications unintelligible. The problem encountered appears related to TTY
equipment or software used by PSAPs. This matter has been brought to the
attention of the FCC, and the wireless industry and the PSAP community are
currently working to resolve this.

you will not be prompted to enter the password again, unless you reset your phone to its
factory default settings or you instruct the phone to forget the network.

Cleaning and Drying Procedures
Your phone may be cleaned using a mild dish detergent. It may also be cleaned using alcohol
or sanitizer wipes. Please see the proper procedures below.
Precautions
●
Remove all accessories, such as screen protector, phone case and cover, and strap. For
details, refer to the instructions that came with your accessory.
●
Before cleaning, be sure the headset jack cover, card slot cover, and charger/USB port
cover are closed firmly to maintain the waterproof capability.
●
Kyocera has tested cleaning products and determined they will not damage the surfaces
of the phone when used properly. A table containing these products can be found at the
end of this section. See Kyocera Tested Products.
●
Never apply or spray alcohol directly on the phone as it can lead to damage of the
coating and could affect its waterproof capability.
●
Never pour liquid detergent directly onto the phone as this may affect the sound quality.
If your phone is exposed to a concentrated liquid detergent, rinse it immediately with
fresh water.
●
Do not expose your phone to water at high pressure, and avoid immersing the phone in
water for more than 30 minutes to maintain the waterproof capability.
●
Clean by hand only. Do not use a hard brush or sponge as this may damage the surface
of the phone and affect phone’s waterproof capability.
